"The Donut of Shame" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season five. In this episode, Patrick thinks he stole SpongeBob's doughnut and tries to hide it from SpongeBob.



SpongeBob and Patrick eat a donut
The morning after SpongeBob's tea party, Patrick wakes up and remembers the tea party. He says that he must have passed out in SpongeBob's kitchen on the ceiling. The screen zooms out and flips upside-down and Patrick falls back onto the floor. He remembers that the party lasted after 8:30 PM and says things get crazy then (although it was only 8:35 and they were not actually that crazy). He looks around for SpongeBob and finds him in the living room with a doughnut in his hand. Since SpongeBob has also passed out, Patrick takes the doughnut.

When he arrives home, he wants to eat it but just before he does he remembers SpongeBob saying, "This kind of doughnut can really make a guy happy..." He then thinks he has stolen SpongeBob's doughnut. Two angel-and-devil doughnuts appear beside him. The angel doughnut tells him not to eat because SpongeBob is his friend while the devil doughnut tells him not to trust the angel doughnut because he has sprinkles. Patrick doesn't know who to trust so the devil doughnut gives him an idea by attaching a chain to it and saying that he can pull it out when SpongeBob wants it back. The angel doughnut says it is actually quite a good idea and the doughnuts disappear. Patrick tests out his method but when he pulls the chain, the doughnut does not come out with it. Panicking, he sticks his hand down his throat and pulls it out.

His phone then rings, with SpongeBob on the other line. He says he will be right over to Patrick's house with a tape of the night before. Patrick realizes that the tape will show him taking SpongeBob's doughnut, so he runs around his house, trying to hide it. He tries under a rug but he thinks that SpongeBob might step on it. He thinks of hiding it in the toilet but he thinks that SpongeBob might want to use it. He then tries his "attic" but halfway up the stairs he remembers he doesn't have one, and falls because there are no stairs either. He then tries the "attic" again but simply falls once more. He then tries to hide it in various other locations but to no avail. SpongeBob comes over and Patrick admits to taking the doughnut, and then SpongeBob says it is all right for him to take the doughnut. He shows Patrick the tape that shows him giving the doughnut to him as a birthday present. Patrick then pulls the doughnut (although, nearly spoiled) from his pocket, splits it in half and asks SpongeBob if he wants to share. SpongeBob accepts as he eats the half doughnut (which has unknown green garbage from Patrick's pants and a chain link on it), only to make him sick and Patrick says, "Pretty good, huh?" (due to the fact that his half did not contain either of the objects SpongeBob's half had) and the episode ends.

  • This is the third episode in which most of the episode takes place inside Patrick's house. The first was "I'm with Stupid" and the second was "Rise and Shine."
  • When SpongeBob steps on the doughnut, jelly squirts out. However, when Patrick splits the doughnut, there is no jelly. When the jelly came out, Patrick was thinking it would happen, so perhaps the jelly was his imagination.
  • This is the third appearance of a doughnut. The first is in "Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy," the second is in "Rock-a-Bye Bivalve," and the fourth is in "Ghoul Fools."
  • On the title card, the classic Castle Thunder sound effect can be heard.
  • Patrick falling repeatedly from his "attic" is similar to him falling repeatedly from Mount Climb-up and Fall-off in "Valentine's Day."
  • Patrick's doughnut appeared again in the DS version of SpongeBob's Truth or Square.
  • When Patrick is talking to Angel Doughnut and Devil Doughnut, he says, "I hate sprinkles!" but the doughnut is covered in sprinkles when he ate it.
  • This is the second episode to have sound effects on title card. The first was "Karate Island."
  • This is the tenth episode where the title card is animated. The ninth was "All That Glitters."
  • There is no bubble transition between the opening credits and the start of the episode. Instead, there is a wipe to Patrick's closed eyes.
  • In a flashback, SpongeBob and Patrick were having a tea party, and the same stuffed animals SpongeBob obtained from "Skill Crane." It takes place after that episode.


  • When Patrick is outside, he has underpants on, but when goes into his rock, his pants are on.
  • When Patrick fell off from the "attic," SpongeBob would have seen him with the doughnut.
  • SpongeBob said he filmed the whole thing, but when he puts the video cassette in Patrick's VCR, it only plays from where SpongeBob gives Patrick the doughnut for his birthday.
